Time to talk rubbish with City

The City confirmed it had an agreement with the Anaeco Resource Recovery facility in Shenton Park to accept up to 22 thousand tonnes of domestic waste each year, but that only represented 20 per cent of the City’s waste.

Stirling Mayor Giovanni Italiano encouraged ratepayers to say on what services they would like to see the City provide via their website.

‘Residents and ratepayers have very strong opinions when it comes to waste and recycling and we want to hear all of their views in this online survey,’ Cr Italiano said.

‘This is a great opportunity to have your say and help set the scene when it comes to the future of waste and recycling.’

Ratepayers will be asked to provide their opinion on whether the city should provide more than one bin and if skip bins should be provided.

The City will review survey responses when considering its application for the $7.5 million State Government program ‘Better Bins Kerbside Collection Pilot Program’ announced earlier this year.

Ratepayers should visit www.stirling.wa.gov.au/yoursay between Monday, March 17 and Thursday, March 27, 2014 to have their say.
